Call Handling Rules
Call Handling Rules are used to adjust the way the specific user’s phone manages calls. Unless specified by the IDeACOM ECSI install team, these rules will not change how the entire phone system will ring. Users can set up a rule by clicking on the plus icon and specifying the event, conditions, and action to adjust how the rule will work in the Rule Set Up window. When the rule has been created, click OK to close the Rule Set Up window and return to the main settings screen. Click the box at the left of the rule to activate the rule (a check mark will be displayed) or deactivate the rule. Press the apply button to save changes. Rules work with the top down priority. Use the arrows on the right of the rule box to move the rule up or down. If there are conflicting active rules the rule that is higher in the list it will take priority over the rule that is lower on the list.
What to do when the power or internet fails
If the internet or power is down the phones will not work as they transmit calls over the internet and are powered by a standard electrical outlet. As long as the user has access to Wi-Fi or mobile data they can make, transfer, and park calls when office phones are not working. Login to the mobile app and calls will be routed to the mobile app in the same way they are to the extension the user logs into. If a user’s phone rings on incoming calls in will ring in the mobile app. If they don’t ring on incoming calls it will not ring when calls come into the phone system.
Note: All Premium and Standard users have access to the Zultys Mobile Communicator app which can be downloaded in the user’s respective app store.
